Brice Johnson (back) is playing 1-on-1 and is very close to returning to true on-court activity per Doc Rivers.
The UNC basketball product and the no. 25 pick in the draft has yet to see the floor this season after suffering an acute herniated disc in his lower back during the preseason. It is a good sign that he can be cleared soon but with Blake Griffin (knee) returning soon also, it does not bode well for his chance at cracking the rotation.
